My name is Sufyan Adli Supiani and I am a recovering patient of Panic Disorder with severe anxieties. I have been unemployed and homebound due to my blackouts for almost four years. There were many times I felt insecure for depending on my family for financial support. Personally, to survive, I kept finding means and ways to stay positive by writing songs. Once upon a time, my debilitating illness had lead me to Depression. Today, I am able to control my daily Panic attacks. I used to be so dysfunctional panicking over anything and everything. But now, I aspire to be an active advocate to create mental illness awareness to the public to at least minimize stigmas and provide hope for recovering patients for hope to continue with the fight to improvements to enjoy a better quality of life if not fully recovered. I hope to inspire them with my music for them to hang on and choose to survive.
More and more teenagers worldwide are facing Depression too young and too early. There is a need for me to get this album done so that I can travel to provide motivational talks to guide and inspire younger generations to sustain sanity as they are our future leaders of the next generations to come. Below is an article of this fact.
My biggest dream is to spread the message around the world and believe the album could also benefit my long winding road of recovery to boost my spirits of choosing to fight my personal daily adversities. It took me almost 4 years to build my confidence again to write music based on my experiences dealing with my illness and have the courage to sing in public again. Besides music, I made efforts to gather my courages by being a caregiver to rescued dogs and cats who were either abandoned or abused. Most of them are now in safe hands and in good loving homes. I survived with the help of animals and by focusing my strength in singing.
Recently, I gathered my courage and believe that my dream to produce an album can be possible if it is meant to be. I believe that a solid amount of funding of sponsorships could produce a quality product. The funded album will comprise of 12 songs to be arranged by professionals from Indonesia.
The possibilities of achieving my entire goal to be funded for the full album would help the album production with the assistance of professional of various departments. Personally, singing is a way I control my hyperventilating panic attacks as it involves breathing techniques. With the right breathing techniques, I could be active focusing on my strengths to stimulate brain.
World Mental Day will be held in October 2014 in Singapore. My hope is to complete the full album by that time for the album launching. Only with the possibilities of achieving my goals for this project to be funded before June, the October launching becomes possible to meet the timeline.A recovering patient I knew published her book about her mental conditions after being sponsored by Indiegogo. I was inspired and the least I could do is to do my very best with this proposal of sponsorships to make this project possible. With the product, I wish to expand the message from local to international mental awareness programs as an advocate through my music and singing.
